If you visit Essaouira, which I would recommend; this is the hotel. We arrived by bus from Marrakech, and the hotel is some minutes from the bus station. We didn´t know how far away the hotel was, so we needed someone to take our luggage and show the way. There were a horde of pushing porters, but we managed to walk a bit away and got got it much cheaper. When we left the hotel we took the luggage ourselves.
We stayed at the hotel for four days, and we felt we were in a kind of luxury heaven. The large room and bathroom, spotlessly clean. The balcony overlooking the pool and patio. nice breakfast every day outside or inside the restaurant. And excellent service the whole time, you were taken care of. perfect location for the beach and the Medina.
The hotel has two restaurants where to go to have dinner. Go to the one over the street! We tried the one for dinner at the hotel. Nice food,ok wine and entertainment, but where was the head waiter? I haven´t been to a more disorganized restaurant. We had to wait a long time for everything, and it wasn´t easy to get a waiter to come to your table.And it wasn´t too much to do, there were waiters standing doing nothing..It looked like they didn´t know what tables/tasks they were responsible for. Could this be a bad day because it wasn´t the standard of the hotel?
Essaouira has a more quiet medina, compared to the one in Marrakech, and I think a lot of things are cheaper there. It´s windy, but the hotel area and pool is great. I would also recommend Restaurant Sirocco just outside the Medina.
